Hello grow chums. I decided that my 5"ruck was very loud and decided to put a sock in it quite literally. After looking around the forum I found that many people had exactly the same complaint and it seem to be popularly known as "WHOOSHING". There are many how to's on the DIY section addressing noisy fans however none are quite like mine. First you'll need some of this, it's that foam exercise mat stuff You'll also need this, it's the cover from your fan, and some tape preferably the stuff that doesn't come unstuck in humid conditions. Plastic netting, chicken wire would very probably also do. Wrap the mat in the netting ,making sure that it will fit easily around the filter cover then cable tie it shut. Make 3x these, and place one at either end and in the middle to prevent a collapse of the filter cover lining. As it nearing Christmas I've decided to cover the whole thing in bacofoil thus! Now, I was fortunate to have a 5-6" reducer lying around however, all you need to do is pull the ducting attached to your fan inside the unit and tape it up vigorously and generously. For very little spent you'll be amazed at how quiet it is with the whooshing minimised, hope this helps someone ,or anybody!
